TSO and Pages

Question: I am working on a macro in TSO to reset user IDs. Is there any way to force TSO to skip to the next page when it reaches the bottom of a page? You see, currently when it reaches line 24 of my session, it prints *** and then the cursor. Anything I type after that is null. I have to press enter twice for it to generate a new blank page. I can't find any macro functions to detect the 'end of page' so I am wondering if there is a setting that will force a new page? Please let me know.

Answer: TSO processes one line at a time - it doesn't know about multiple lines at all. To achieve what you want you would need to make use of ISPF instead which understands pages.
